90s B sci fi/western movie, guy buys a mirror that actually is a portal to a wild west town

It was on hbo or cinemax all the time in the early 90s. It’s so foggy I don’t remember much.

A guy gets some mirror for his house and it turns out you walk into it it takes you to some other world (dimension?) Where its wild west, but theres bad guys that are obviously from the future or something.
All I remember is a bad guy had a robotic arm like Cable from x men and/or a glowing red eye…

And the nerd/geek of the group wusses out and goes back thru the wild west worlds mirror/portal back to his house where it all started, only to realize he needs to help his friends who were left behind (and if I’m not mistaken get the girl, who is from his world or the wild west one, I don’t remember) and he does, which leads to him and buddies beating the futuristic baddies.

That’s all I got, other than the scene where nerd guy in his house staring at the mirror trying to convince himself to go back to it to rescue his friends and hes pretty damn scared.

It was on hbo/cinemax/or showtime all the time in the early 90s, obviously was never in theaters, and was a scifi/western mix…. and a mirror they randomly bought was a portal to that western world. Me and my friends (born 1982-1984) all remember it bc it was on tv so much when we were kids but none of us remember the name or any actors.

Weve looked up scifi/western movie mix lists, movies with portals mix, movies with mirrors as portals and haven’t found anything.

Its been killing us for almost 20 years. Does this ring a bell to Anyone ?

For some reason most of the scenes that I recall take place at night…. thanks anyways

Early 90s sci fi/western movie, group of guys used a mirror that was a portal

It was on hbo/cinemax all the time in the mid 90s. It was not a big box office movie,  it was a cheesy b movie.

All I remember was something about a mirror that was actually a portal to another dimension, and it took you to a wild west town except the bad guys were heavily sci fi. I remember one bad guy had an metal arm like the winter soldier from Captain America.

All I really remember was the nerd of the group. He wussed out and took the mirror back home,  then had to get the balls to go back and save his friends and he did, also getting the girl too.


It was a sci fi/western movie,  my friends all remember it, but we don’t remember the title or any actors that were in it. The acting was cheesey, the costumes for the bad guys were pretty standard for a b movie.

Ive looked up every sci f western movie made in the 90s and cant find this.  Anyone know what it was?
